Blazer Outfit Ideas For Everyone

Blazers are a great solution for when the weather is between hot and cold. It’s a great ‘in-between’ jacket. Besides, blazers are a perfect way to upgrade a simple outfit and keep you warm at the same time. I have gathered my favorite styles for you to check. Let me know which one is your favorite.

Sustainable Brand: JW Pei

Fake leather has been on the market for a very long time. The commonly used materials for synthetic leather are polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polyurethane (PU), which are plastic-based materials. As conscious consumerism is rising and entering the mainstream the challenge is to find fake leather accessories made from ecologically friendly materials instead of plastic.  I did a little research and found a new brand that it’s making their best to make luxury bags as sustainable as possible. Let me introduce you to JW PEI. This luxury brand makes bags from recycled bottles. The recycling technology has evolved so much that nearly all polyester-based materials can be recycled. The bags and their lining are made from 100% recycled bottles. JW PEI only works with factories that are certified by GRS (Global Recycling Standards) and the Oeko-Tex Standard.

On these series of pictures, I show you how I style the JW PEI ‘Drawstring Backpack’  in black. For that, I made two different outfits. The pictures were made in Amersfoort by the photographer Marisa Elisa Photography.

Sustainable Brand: Matter Prints

Fair fashion has the bad reputation of being boring and basic. It took me some time until I found MATTER: a brand that makes fashionable and responsible clothes.

Socially responsibility and transparency it’s at the core of MATTER. Their philosophy focus on:
– slow production by choosing quality over quantity
– slow design by collaborating with rural artisans and let them incorporate their cultural heritage in the patterns and techniques
– slow fashion by creating timeless pieces
From design to production the garment takes up to 6 months.

On these series of pictures, I´m wearing the “Sideswept Dhoti Trikora” pants. Inspired by the multifold drapes of the Indian dhoti, this version comes in the geometric Trikora pattern. This pants were weaved in Pochampally and were stitch in Delhi. The material is 100% cotton, selectively bundled and dyed by hand with azo-free dyes, the threads are then hand-loomed.
The pictures were made by the talented photographer Marisa Broekhuizen Check her work HERE.

I HAVE BEEN WEARING THE SAME CLOTHES OVER AND OVER AGAIN

Today it’s been a month since I started the challenge 333. I have been repeating my outfits over and over again. When I think about it, it sounds crazy and it makes me feel that it is not possible to live like that, but now that I see it on my pictures I feel confident that it´s totally ok.

This is how my last week looked like:

 

 

 

On my day to day, I sometimes forget that I am doing this challenge. It´s only when I see the pictures that I realize that I wear the same black destroyed jeans and the golden shoes at least twice per week. It´s great to document my outfits to realized it. Another thing that I have noticed is that none one of my friends or my colleagues have told me anything negative about my clothes or asked me why I repeat clothes so often. I thought it would be obvious but I guess that was only in my head. It´s been only one month but I feel that I have gained the confidence to wear my clothes over and over again. I chose clothes that I feel good in, this makes it easier to repeat outfits. I consciously change the color of my lipstick or I use a choker or a bandana or even change my hairstyle to give it a little twist to my look.

During the month of June, these were the items I wore the most:

 

 

The black destroyed jeans I wore 12 times, the golden shoes 9 times and the blue jeans 6 times.

These are the items I wore the least:

 

 

The striped dress and the white V-neck shirt I have only worn once and the denim skirt to my own surprise, I haven’t wear at all.
One month was over very fast but I am loving this and can´t wait to see if I can keep it up two more months.

Next week more updates, check my last week updates here and here.

With love,
